Don't see so many good female comics and she is great! Love all of her stuff and she does not have to resort to raunch and filthy language to try and be entertaining.
After a brief initial bit about her imaginary illnesses, she performs a really funny routine on the USO tour of Afghanistan and Bosnia that she took with fellow comedian Black and singers Kid Rock and Kellie Pickler, who is apparently just as dumb as she seems in interviews. Madigan's best crack about Afghanistan is her response to friends who ask her how much money it will cost to fix that benighted nation: "How much money would it cost to fix the moon?"
Quick, amusing riffs on Detroit, the National Guard, bickering parents, Hilary Clinton, and Barack Obama come to a crashing halt when Madigan does an unabashedly racist routine about the Chinese, complete with a poor imitation of an accent. Since she's from Missouri, though, I don't suppose I should be surprised (I said that in a St. Louis accent, which you can't hear, but trust me, it was hilarious).
Madigan's use of accents, occasionally a strength, is at times a failing, as when she augments a bit on getting a sketchy home loan from WaMu with a supposedly Filipino accent that doesn't come within 5,000 miles of the Philippines. If you're going to mock other nationalities, you have to get this right or you come across as an ignorant bigot. Her liberal use of profanity and her choice of transient or outdated subjects like the Underwear Bomber don't bother me nearly as much as this casual racism.Read more ›
